Prepare for the Flood.
Microsoft has officially announced a new expansion for Halo Wars 2, title Awakening the Nightmare. The expansion will add on an entirely new campaign that finally introduces the terrifying Flood to the game.
Awakening the Nightmare has you taking control of The Banished this time around, and using brand new units and weaponry to try and hold the line against the unrelenting hordes of the Flood. In addition to a new campaign, the expansion will also add on new leaders, units, and maps for multiplayer. Microsoft release a short teaser trailer for Awakening the Nightmare, which you can see down below. The trailer shows a unit of Brutes wandering into a dark ruin, with the voice of Atriox cryptically saying he told them not to go there. It should also be noted that Halo Wars 2 was one of the games listed that will get an enhancement boost on the Xbox One X.
Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare doesn’t currently have a release date, but it will be coming to both Xbox One and PC. We’ll make sure to keep you updated with any new info or a release date for the expansion.
